Did Roseanne Barr go too far with this Twitter pic? Seems like a total fail to us

Roseanne Barr made what she thought was a pretty clever joke about her own face — but in reality, it was incredibly insensitive to certain alleged rape victims.

Barr decided to make light of the situation — and her own busted face — with a little joke.

Barr made her opinion on the allegations clear in an interview with the New York Daily News last week.
